I hate the idea of using more chemical pesticides as I've already dumped all my insecticides and currently have a bee explosion in my little urban garden

I have 2 lamiums, both looking very nice and covered in flowers (bees love them) but one plant seems to have rust coloured patches on most of its older leaves.

Rhubarb in a pot also has a coupe of leaves with similar markins.

Neither plant seems to be suffering though.

leave alone or use something organic which you clever folk would know about?

If you cut the lamiums hard back you should get a nice fresh set of leaves.

thanks WW - best to do it after they've flowered you think?

Yes if they look good now. Give them enough time to grow leaves before autumn/cooler weather.
